Course summary

Our BA Film Studies and Linguistics course will enable you to study film from a range of historical and theoretical perspectives while delving into the unique human faculty of language.You will learn through taught units and screenings that focus on both classical and contemporary films, covering a wide range of film cultures from around the world. You will study both mainstream and non-mainstream films to broaden your understanding of the history of film, as well as the debates and issues that are informing and generated by current practice in film and shaping its future.You will also develop an understanding of how film engages with socio-cultural and political concerns, placing the films you study in their historical context, as well as thinking about current debates and future challenges for cinema as a medium.The course emphasises historical and theoretical approaches to studying film rather than practical production, encouraging you to develop as an independent critical thinker able to work in a diverse range of assessment scenarios, taking in solo written assignments, presentations and, on certain units, group work and creative projects that enable you to put theory into practice.Through your Linguistics units, you will explore how languages arise, change and die, how children acquire their first language, how adults learn a second or foreign language, differences between the speech of men and women, how we communicate as individuals and within groups and what happens when speakers of different languages come into contact. You will also be able to develop transferable skills in quantitative methods.
